The Coconino County Attorney's Office is dedicated to the vigorous and
fair prosecution of crime throughout Coconino County, protection of the
rights of crime victims, and effective legal representation of the
County and many County special districts.
Crime can leave a devastating and lasting impact on the lives of victims. If you have been a victim of crime, you may apply for financial assistance for out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a direct result of the crime. The Victim Compensation program may help pay for medical expenses, mental health counseling expenses, funeral expenses and loss of wages. Click here for more information.
Felony Charging provides timely charging of cases and decision making to prepare the case for successful prosecution. This unit consists of two attorneys and four legal assistants. In addition to their Charging, responsibilities the Legal Assistants provide support for other areas such as Grand Jury, Flagstaff Justice Court cases, the Bad Check Program and dispositional reporting to the Department of Public Safety (DPS) State Criminal History Repository for charges that are not filed in court. As well, the attorneys in the Charging unit have additional duties, providing training to Law Enforcement and participating in the Case Review Panel process.
Over the last three months the Felony Charging unit has entered 422 felony charging requests into our system. We have charged 216 cases, declined 87 and returned 42 cases to Law Enforcement for further police action. We thank Felony Charging for all they do. Their consistency and attention to detail provides a solid footing for all of the felony cases that come through our doors.
